Page Background


The Anne Arundel County Government and the Chesapeake Bay Trust announce a grant program to support watershed restoration projects and programs throughout Anne Arundel County. 

The Watershed Restoration Grant Program aims to improve water quality in Anne Arundel County’s local streams and waterways, as called for in the County’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit and Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP), which require reductions in storm flow volume and pollutants entering the County’s waterways.  

Although the grant program is funded entirely through the Anne Arundel County Watershed Restoration and Protection Fund, the County has partnered with the Chesapeake Bay Trust, who will administer the program for the County.  The Chesapeake Bay Trust promotes public awareness and participation in the restoration and protection of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
